LifeWear: Can Mobile Systems Enrich Your Social and Healthcare Interactions? Visionary thinker Dr. Sandy Pentland's group at MIT is developing LifeWear, systems that create "quality of life" maps by monitoring social networks to proactively enhance our personal and social lives. Using enhanced mobile phone technology, devices can measure the common sense signals that we use to assess each other, such as tone of voice, body language, and patterns of interaction. Learn how this family of emerging technologies could enhance our ability to manage communications and interactions with family, health assessment, care giving, social and work situations.
